Largest known stars (Stars over 700 solar radii)

Post #1by nussun » 09.01.2020, 16:23

Here is my addon of the largest known stars. In this addon there are 53 stars all with a diameter of at least 700 solar radii. All sizes come from wikipedia.

Is that a comparison addon, in which the stars are put side-by-side or is that an addon which adds the stars in their respective places according to RA, Dec and Distance?

It was enough to download and make sure that the coordinates are real.

There are a few things that Luke's addon has and yours doesn't, specifically TYC numbers (you can find them using SIMBAD; here is how to format them) and stellar companions for the stars in binary systems (e.g. HR 5171, VV Cephei). Also, why are you using a recolored M star texture for yellow hypergiants?

Nice addon. I decided to change the script a bit to give all the supergiants a new texture made using Universe Sandbox 2 Alpha 11.3, Snowfall's sphere painter, and Photoshop CS6 (mainly to assemble the texture and to change the color to reality). I also added in Antares with a modified size, as well as adding the texture.

It isn't just for VV Cephei, it's for all the red supergiants and hypergiants that are included in the addon, which was also edited to modify Antares too.

OK.

Actually, it looks a lot like the red supergiant texture in Universe Sandbox 2.
